Hi, I'm Taryn.
I began dancing professionally at 14 years of age and performed for many years as a "Candy Lane Dancer". In 1999, I moved overseas and danced a variety of styles in Australia and then Europe.
I started my company 5678 DanceSport for a few reasons. Firstly, I love teaching dance, but more important through teaching dance (specifically partner dancing), I started to notice huge changes in the social interaction between the children I was teaching. I was now getting joy out of not only the children learning dance, but more importantly, their positive attitudes towards one another.
Like learning a language, dance becomes harder to grasp as you get older...and so do manners and respect.
Starting 5678 DanceSport at a young age helps build confidence and improves social development, with the added benefit of learning to dance!
I loved dancing with Taryn because we got to learn lots of cool dance steps and dances. I really hope you come back to Greenhithe school for the year fours when they do the dances. I'd learned to never give up even if you can't do it.
